Apple Australia tells Samsung to destroy Galaxy Tab 10.1 stock

Apple iPad 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Apple has succeeded to halt the launch of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 through a court order in Australia. Furthermore, its demanding that Samsung destroy all their tablets as part of a legal battle over intellectual property. Yesterday in court Apple accused Samsung's galaxy tab of infringing on 10 patents including the general look and feel of the iPad touchscreen.

With $US76 billion in cash reserves, Apple will do everything to protect its position as a market leader in Tablet PCs from other tablet manufacturers. Its highly likely that the company will file charges with similar claims on Samsung's smartphone range.
